COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly balanced double IPA. A pirate without the use of his eyes is a bitter man indeed. And this Blind Pirate’s bitterness is only matched by his boldness. He doesn’t care if you enjoy the citrusy, spicy combination of hops on your tongue, the faint herbal notes in your nose, or the exquisite balance of caramel malts looting your senses. The Blind Pirate is a bold, bitter ale not for the weak in spirit. Just don’t ask him if you can borrow his sight glass. He gets offended.

Draft pour at the tasting room. 6 oz. Nice golden amber with a thick head. Pine, citrus, grass, hay and cereal aroma. The taste was pine and resin with some citrus and biscuit. Nice finish with some bitterness and herbs. Well balanced. Good from this new brewery.

Ed5388 (2537) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2015
12oz bottle of expired beer thanks to some douche bag on HBT!!! Pours an Ice-T brown color with a small beige head of foam. Aroma of rotted citrus and loads of malty expired IPA! Taste is herbal, malty, lemon ice-t, and pine. Taste is better then the aroma, but once again an expired beer from a shitty trade!

slight simcoe aroma. Dark orange with yeast floating. Kind of a harsh flavor with a little bit of aftertaste.

Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

maekchu (2726) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Big citrusy nose, and a bit stinky, rude fruitiness. Bright but hazy copper color. Caramel, tasty hops, some overripe fruit, sugar. Some balance in finish. Medium body. Not quite a caramel bomb... but almost. Very nice aromas.

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a slightly hazy pale burnt orange with thin eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter and piney hops with a bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid beer.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and lightly toasted malts, resiny, citrus hops, moderate bitterness, I think I like this a little better than the average, yes it’s malt forward but decent beer.

DrSilverworm (8538) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2015
12oz bottle, shared with local raters. Picked up from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Hazy red orange color. Thin off-white head. Some bits of lace. Impressive hop on this... Good bigger grapefruit, spicy hop, some pine. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Some biscuity, mild caramel malt... But this is mostly hop-forward. Impressive; better than expected.

-Aroma: Strong bitter grapefruit. -Appearance: Dark iced tea with thin off white head. -Taste: Slow burning whiskey like alcohol presence & strong grapefruit bitterness with a slightly lemony after bite. -Palate: Medium - Full bodied with lingering bitterness. -Overall: Good Imperial IPA that I would compare or describe as a Cold Jim Beam with hops.

mixmasterob (969) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Hazy dark amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was of muted citrus hops and lots of caramel. Flavors were slightly sweet, light citrus, dark fruits and a bitter hoppy finish. Plus mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. This almost drinks like a "light Barleywine" as this one has some age on it. Rather nice.
